Hi
I don't know if this is possible but...
I would like to build a machine to run:
NeXSTEP 3.3
OpenStep 4.2
BeOS (what's the best version to use?)
Rhapsody DR2

I would like to use a next cube case because they look REALLY cool! (like the ones in the supercubes)
Also I'd like to use the case from an original next monitor and put like a new lcd screen inside of it.
Does anyone know where to get this hardware (including CPU, motherboard, graphics card, and the cases)?
Also if you've got any pointers, let me know.

Thanks!
Kevin

Hallo!
I have BeOs 5.0 on a Compaq Deskpro and his turn pretty cool..
But for a "modern" BeOS (driver + usb) you can install ZetaOs (is BeOS based).

All those OS are free download on www.freeos.com

Bye!

Just a note about ZetaOS - development ceased and the support infrastructure imploded recently:

I think your best hope of running BeOS on modern hardware is to see what comes out of the Haiku project. http://haiku-os.org/

The only thing limiting what you can put into *anything* is your imagination and the size of available parts.
